Evidence Against Dr. Colin A. Ross, vol. 1


SHOW MORE


"According to one expert witness, it was the worst case of medical malpractice he had ever seen. The patient, Ms. Roma E. Hart, had been grossly over-medicated into a prolonged state of deranged confusion, during which time the offending psychiatrist, Dr. Colin A. Ross, had instilled her with exotic and perverse delusions. To wit, the rather implausible belief that her family was involved in an occult crime-ring dedicated to a supernatural evil, and that Hart herself had been forcibly impregnated by extraterrestrials, birthing a hybrid infant (presumably in the course of a routine alien abduction). The magnitude of Ms. Hart's mistreatment during her submission to psychiatric "care" brought her to the precipice of death on several occasions."
-- from 'Dr Colin A. Ross: Psychiatry, the Supernatural, and Malpractice Most Foul' by Douglas Mesner (www.process.org)

The attached legal affidavits, depositions, letters, articles, etc. combine to tell an intriguing tale of a pop psychiatry fad run amok. In order to understand the thinly concealed conspiracist mythology of Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD -- now re-labeled Dissociative Identity Disorder [DID]), one must understand the bizarre and hideous career of one of its greatest propagators.

"Ross can not be dismissed as a marginal fool. He is a well-respected and dangerous fool. Indeed, Dr. Colin Ross is an "internationally renowned clinician, researcher, author and lecturer in the field of dissociation and trauma-related disorders". He is founder and President of the Colin A. Ross Institute for Psychological Trauma, which "specializes in the management of psychiatric treatment programs and is currently contracted to provide management and treatment services to Timberlawn Mental Health System, in Dallas, Texas, Forest View Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Del Amo Hospital, in Torrance, California." Ross is "the author of over 130 professional papers and past President of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation", and acts as expert consultant for the Showtime television series The United States of Tara. Dr. Ross has acted as therapist for celebrity Rosanne Barr [...], and Cameron West, author of the New York Times bestselling First Person Plural: My Life as a Multiple." -ibid

The following was compiled in 1998 by a heart-broken Mr. George Bergen following the death of his wife who was an out-patient at Dr. Ross's clinic in Manitoba. It is appended with an afterword by Doug Mesner of process.org.

Ross currently practices in Texas.
